Is there something going on with American Express.  I haven't had an update for over a week.  I keep getting the same error, something wrong with their website.  I haven't changed numbers nor password.  I never got a notice to sync it like other cards.

Do you know if we have to contact AmEX or Qbs?

I'm double checking the amex login works ok, if it does I plan to remove the amex account from the qbo dashboard and re-add it....see if that helps.

Hi there, paulag and beth1.

Thanks for checking in with us here in the Community. It's my priority to get this bank issue sorted out and help get you back on track.

 

Did you receive any error message while trying to update your bank account? If so, we can perform some troubleshooting steps to resolve the error.

 

Let’s start with manually updating your bank:

  1. From the left menu, select Banking.
  2. Click on Banking.
  3. Click the Update button in the upper right corner.
  4. If prompted, enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) credentials and then click Continue Update.

For more information about this process, please refer to this article: Fix online banking errors in QuickBooks Online.

 

As a workaround you can use the WebConnect feature. This allows you to download transactions from your financial institution and upload to your QuickBooks.

 

If the issue persists after trying these steps, I'd suggest giving our Customer Care Team a call. They have the necessary tools to work with you to find out what exactly may be causing this issue.

 

Please know that the Community has your back should you have any questions. Have a good one.

Same here. my AMEX CC transactions haven't downloaded for 1-week now and the QB error message says it's because the AMEX website is undergoing maintenance and that this is temporary. The AMEX website is fine, I can easily log on and navigate as usual. Tried updating my password and re-logging in etc... Following along to see if anyone finds anything out!

Thanks for taking time joining this thread, @brasshilldesign.

 

May I know if you’re referring to the Error 102 or 105? If so, these error means QuickBooks Online is unable to connect to your bank’s website and would usually be fixed within 24 hours.


To resolve this, let’s manually update your bank account to refresh the connection between your bank and QuickBooks. The steps were provided above by my colleague @BettyJaneB.


You might also want to check the list of most common banking error codes and the steps on how to fix it: Manually update account to fix banking errors in QuickBooks Online.

 

If the error persist, I recommend getting in touch with our QuickBooks Online Support. They'll be able to take a closer look at the issue and conduct further investigation on why you're unable to download transaction for a week now.

 

Keep me posted if you have other questions about downloading bank transactions in QBO. I'm always here and ready to assist.

Same problem here. Also started about a week ago ... 

 

Try updating your account again

 

If that doesn't work, your bank's website is having trouble. It's usually something routine, or at least temporary. Try updating again tomorrow. (105)

Hi,

 

I've been getting the same fake 105 error for three days now, and it's starting to become a significant issue. For the past four days, I've also been getting a 102 error from my business Visa card account from City National Bank.

 

So, basically, Quickbooks has totally eliminated my ability to update both of the company credit card accounts  -- which is becoming a huge issue. When I spoke to Customer Service, I was told to keep waiting ... which is usually Intuit's way of saying, "we don't know what the problem is, so just sit there like an idiot and see if the problem goes away".

 

Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone from Support know what's going on there? I'm giving it a few more days, then will start looking for an alternate solution to Quickbooks. Getting sick of the constant errors ... and the fact that every time it happens, no one at Intuit can give me a straight answer. Thx.

 

- Len

Aside from this, you can visit this website to check for the status of the investigation: http://status.quickbooks.intuit.com/. You can use the following investigation number as your reference:

I'm with you until this gets fixed. Should you have other concerns or need help with QuickBooks, just let me know and I'll get back to you.

Me too. Same issue with American Express. Hasn't been able to connect for many weeks. Very frustrating. Customer Support keeps telling me to wait longer and try again. They also suggested that "AMEX limits access on Mondays due to maintenance backups"? What? Er, ok.

I'd like to thank you for choosing QuickBooks Online, dalim86686. 

 

Our developers are always working to improve QuickBooks so everyone will have the best experience. There's an update that all new connections with American Express Open are unavailable. This is because our engineers are working for a new and best way to connect Amex to QuickBooks. 

 

For now, you'll want to manually import your Amex transactions. You can log in to Amex online account and get a webconnect file. This file contains all your bank transactions for a period of time. Then, you can upload it to your QuickBooks Online account. Here's an article for the detailed steps: Manually upload transactions into QuickBooks Online.

 

Feel free to post again if you need more help. Have a great day!
